|Big Moose Inn from the water|
|one of the 3 docks at the BMI|
We are making the most of our time....started with a short swim across the lake and then had breakfast on the deck. Weather on Tuesday brought a lot of rain and we just relaxed and then went out on the boat in the afternoon with the owner and his kids (his 1 day off a week) We saw many of the camps and some just peeking through the trees. All lakefront and with boats and docks afloat.
John was helping with a few projects around the Inn and I was drinking hard cider on the deck
Training for Ironman is about logging miles in swim,bike,run and that is the fun part (most of the time) but the nutrition and recovery part is the challenge. What to eat and not to eat and when to eat to get the maximum recover. What do drink and not do drink (alcohol and big training don't mix) So it is a constant vigilance to eat well, hydrate and be well prepared for your next workout.
So post race it is always refreshing to not care.... so for example Monday I had eggs and coffee (not bad) , Frito's for lunch with a red bull (bad), JB and I shared a bottle of wine (no appetizers) and soon had pulled pork nachos... followed by more wine and a delicious dinner. Tuesday was 3-4 cups of coffee (recovering from the genius idea of a 2nd bottle of wine) 1 bagel with peanut butter gu (what a tri geek but I love PB on bagels and the did not have any) lunch was the rest of the chocolate we had brought along and some carrots followed by Angry Orchard Ciders and dinner that started with chocolate chip cookies and pizza and salad. Gee wonder why I wake up not feeling fresh and cheery....
Today.... I think we shall explore the Fingelake Wineries and continue on Johns serious research on Adirondack chairs for his new business venture.
